President Dickerson to Regis
ter Objection to Tbese Towns
as Members of New
Arkoma League.
Kansas City, Mo., Jan, 22.y-(Spe-cial
Telegram.) The Western league,
will dispute ,the right of the newly
organized Arkoma league to the Tul
sa and Oklahoma City base ball ter
ritory and it is understood President
E. W. Dickerson has been ordered to
file a claim for the territory with
Secretary John H. Farrell of the Na
tional Association of Professional
Base Baft leagues.
As soon as news that, the Arkoma
league hai been formed was received
tfr Western league headquarters here
the magnates of the old circuit got
busy and President Dickerson, who is
in Grand Rapids, was instructed to
lie a claim for the territory. . '
The Western league bases its claim
to Tulsa and Oklahoma City on the
fact '.that Dickerson is supposed to
have previously, filed claim for the
territory in the event that the West
ern association decided to throw up
".he sponge.
Although the Arkoma league has
been formed by men formerly inter
ested in one way or another in the
Western association, still the mag
nates of Dickerson's circuit claim that
when the Western association voted
lo give up any towns that desired to
enter another circuit it threw the ter
ritory openN and that the Western
league had first call to the two Okla
homa tities and has the right to ac
cept or reject the territory before the
new Arkoma league can take posses
sion. :'',';'" ."
The Western league needs Tulsa
and Oklahoma City in order to give
it a compact circuit for 1918 and thusJ
minimize expenses of traveling. It
would also give those cities class "A"
base ball, which President Dickerson
claims the business men of Tulsa and
Oklahoma City would like. The Na
tional association will settle the con
troversy, ? ,

Government Operation of Lines
Results in Elimination of 10
Trains Between Omaha
and Chicago.
For the Omaha-Chicago railroads
he government has dorje exactly the
thing that it has prohibited them from
doing. It is letting them, or rather, is
forcing them, to pool on the handling
of meat trains out of Omaha to the
cast. y ' - .
Heretofore the six Omana-Chicago
roads have been running 12 meat
trains to the east daily, or rather, two
over each of the roads. Under the
pooling plan adopted by the govern
ment railroad director general, the
number has been reduced to two, 10
having been eliminated.
Under the old plan for handling
meat to the east, each Omaha-Chicago
line sent out a meat train each morn
ing and another each afternoon. T(fey
went regardless of whether or not
they carried capacity loads. Hjht
trains were not fully loaded whenThey
left the Omaha yards, they were ex
pected to gather up tonnage enroute.
The running schedule was 27 hours
lor tne ow miles. y
When .Director ueneral, AicAdoo
took over the operation of ahe rail
roads, one the first tilings to be
worked out was. a pooling plan for
the handling of dressed meats from
the Omaha packing houses and to the
east. Now the plan has been evolved
and the pool is complete, with the
running time oj the trains lengthened
to 42 hours between Omaha and Chi
cago. ' ' -

Present Financial Conditions
Will Improve, According to
Annual Report of Federal
; Reserve Board.
" i -" ' ...
Washington,. Jan. 22. Effect of
credit expansion' on the general rise
of prices, and te-part the American
people can play; in counteracting in
flation by. wartime' economies were
emphasized today by the federal re
serve board in its annual report to
congress. , ...
Explaining that even though crdit
expansion is not entirely responsible
for increase in prices, the board says
"it .regards it as one of its most im
portant duties to prevent, as far as
practicable, expansion of banking
credit from running an uncontrolled
course. " '
y Must Save Credit.
"Goods and credit," says the re
port, "must be saed to the utmost of
our ability, in order to check the up
ward movement of prices'and ir order
to free for the use of the government
the goods and savings required for the
winning of the war."
f The prcsint condition of a greatly
expanded currency will be improved,
the board believes, "as the public per
forms its duty of absorbing the gov
ernment loans out of savings."
Before the third Liberty loan, the
report adds, federal reserve banks
must reduce their investments to
strengthen reserves and avoid further
expansion that has accompanied the
last two Liberty loans.
: War Influenced Money Market.
. Among the many radical influences
of the war on the money markets the
board explained that one of the most
pronounced had been the effort of
certain interests to have the federal
resrve system absorb 90-day notes or
other short term paper accepted with
the privilege of repeated renewals.
The board had persistently opposed
any such effort to destroy liquidity of
the banks' assets, on which the sys
tem was based, the report said, but it
admitted that the difficulties of pri
vate and corporate financing was so
jreat as to justify action by congress.
The most serious problem, corpo
rate financing, has been removed by
government operation of .railroads,
says the board's report, but the situa
tion is still serious. ,
Government Must Intervene.
"The board therefore respectfully
suggests early-consideration by con
gress of the problem of corporate fi
nancing in the belief that no satisfac
tory solution will be found that does
not involve some degree of govern
ment intervention.
"The board is of the opinion that
some plan for government mterven-
K.'am tr A fin K wrtrlrpt mffr wtiirh
would 'meet the requirements of the
situation satisfactorily."
' Referring to the enormous strain
on finances during the last year of the
government's loans and to the aid
givefl by the federal reserve system,
the report says:
'"The federal reserve noje will
more . speedily attain the position
originally intended for it from being
an occasional emergency currency
used to supplement deficiencies in the
supply of other existing forms of cur
rency, it is becoming, the most im
portant constituent of our circulation
medium, responding promptly and
naturally to currency requirements
from whatever .source proceeding,
thus giving to our whole currency a
kind and degree of elasticity it has
never before possessed."
Earnings of the 12 federal reserve
banks in 1917 were-reported as $15,
800,000 gjoss and $11,200,000 net, with
declared dividends of about $6,800,
000. The board's expenses have been a
little less than $250,000 and the cost
of administering the gold settlement
fund has been only $3,500, or 1 1,-3
cents per $1,000. '

Chicago Meat Workers. Inform
Government Mediation Board
Prompt Action is Necessary
, to Avoid Calamity.
Washington, Jan. 22. The demand
of Chicago packing house employes
for government control of the' meat
industry during the war was broad
ened today to include all the packing
plants of tRe United States.
It was made clear attfie outset of
hearings before the president's medi
ation commission that the employes
believed the question) to be one of na
tional necessity and not merely a local
dispute between the Chicago plants
and their workers. J
"It-js absurd for a group of six
companies to control the food supply
of the United States and the allies,"
Frank P. Walsh, attorney for the
workers, told the commission.
Mr. Walsh declared it was neces
sary' for the government to act now
and not wait for a calamity.
. Levy Mayer, attorney for the pack
ers, argued that the companies were
striving to' assist the nation In the
war and that there was no-adequate
reason to justify seizure of the plants
from the owners. :,
Disagreement developed as to the
operation of the Chicago mediation
pact, negotiated by the. commission

Prominent German Editor De
clares That Kaiser Made
Mistake in Taking Alsace-Lorraine.
Amsterdam, Jan. 22. German?
should not . take any territory from
the Russian empire and might give
back Alsace-Lorraine to France, Max.
imilian Harden declares in Die Zu
kunft. He says:
"He who -wishes to tear cway Po
land, Courland, Lithiiaiila, Esthonia
and Livonia from the Russian em
pire makes of this empire a mortal
enemy, for Russia will net always
have Leninistic feelings.
"These countries would bring usnc
advantage. Their economic develop
ment could not in the least be helped
by .gold fertilization, by Germany with
its 150,000,000,000 marks of war debt
and a Slavic strain through Germany
would endanger the life of the coun
try, not merely the life of East Prus
sia. Mistake to Take Provinces.
"After our experience in the west,
is there now to be created a much
greater and more dangerous Alsace
Lorraine?" With regard to Alsace-Lorraine,
Herr Harden writes:
"Neither Premier Lloyd George
nor President Wilson believe Ger
many is willing to surrender Alsace-.
Lorraine to France at the present mo
ment, but what about Germany's at
titude two or three years after peace
is signed, when there ca.v be-a fair
consultation , with the piople?"
. "It was admittedly a mistake to take
possession of Alsace-Lorraine. '
"Must we always carry this burden
some inheritance of our forefathers?"
